Christmas has just passed, so is the season of gifting. Do you remember this giant Toy Bank at Cheras Leisure Mall which I have blogged HERE? It was set up since 4 December 2015 to collect gifts of love for over 400 children from 13 children’s homes and charity houses, as part of the mall’s annual programme—“Toy Bank, A Gift of Love”.
If you do not already know, this programme has been an annual tradition for PPB Group Berhad since year 1999 to express their care and love towards underprivileged children. Fortunately, every year there are many regular donors who contribute the gifts to the community, and they also bring along more friends to join this good cause.
Colourful wish cards bearing the children’s Christmas wishes are displayed at the wishing tree. And generous donors can pick any card, select a toy or gift from child’s wishlist and then deposit the gift together with the wish card at the Toy Bank.
Look at the large amount of gifts on stage! This Toy Bank programme is indeed successful as it manages to collect 2,700 gifts throughout the month, along with numerous donations of household necessity items from the shoppers.
The participating homes which will be rewarded this Christmas include Shepherd’s Centre Foundation, Trinity Community Children’s Home, Persatuan Kebajikan Warga Tua dan Kanak-kanak WP, Pusat Jagaan Beribuan Kasih, Kajang, Bodhi Homecare Cheras, San Pedro Orphanage Home, Rumah Sayangan, Rumah Kanak-kanak Angels, Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-kanak Cornerstone, Yayasan Sunbeams Home, Rainbow Home, Rumah Bakti Nur Syaheera and Pusat Majudiri Y for the Deaf.
To celebrate the Toybank programme this year, a gift presentation ceremony is held at Cheras Leisure Mall, with the presence of 165 children from the participating homes. The kids are treated for a special movie screening of “Legend of a Rabbit: The Martial of Fire” at GSC, followed by buffet lunch at the mall.
Happy tummies give more cheer to the children!

Of course, this enjoyable day is not complete without some interesting dance performances from the little ones and adults.

The event concludes with the gift presentation ceremony by Ms Eva Hew, Assistant General Manager, Marketing & Promotion (Retail), Property Division, PPB Group Berhad to the respective children from each home.
I am sure the kids are overjoyed to receive their presents!
They also have a group photo session before the children head home and start unboxing the presents they receive.
